Who are the goalies who played in the NHL anytime from 1979-80 to 1989-90, who you most remember/identify with and why? Here are mine: Mike Liut- Blues, Whalers, Capitals I was at the Boston Garden for his first-ever NHL game, when he came into the game in relief of Ed Stanikowski (and a 5-0 deficit) and stopped everything the Big, Bad B's threw at him to pull out a 5-5 tie. I loved the mask, but was really dazzled by him (as a 7-year-old) for how smooth and confident he looked. B's fans smelled blood in the water when the rookie came in, but he was tremendous. Followed him closely when he came to the Whalers and had a hard time rooting against him in the Adams Division. I've met him a few times since his retirement and he's all class. We've had some great discussions about his playing days, and I can't say enough about how great it is to meet a childhood idol and discover that he's a humble, charismatic guy like Liut is. Andy Moog- Oilers, Bruins I first noticed Moog when he was in net for the clinching game of the Oil's first SC victory against the Islanders. Always liked him and followed him as much as I could and was thrilled when the Bruins acquired him after the '88 Olympics. He and Rejean Lemelin did great things for the B's- just wish they could have captured the Cup. Moog had a great run in '90, only to play poorly against Edmonton in the finals. After he gave up that OT goal to Petr Klima, his confidence seemed shaken. Grant Fuhr- Oilers The guy was just money. It seemed like whenever the intensity ramped up the most, he was there to make each big save and make it look easy. In an era when scoring ruled the day, Fuhr was a goalie who saved his best for April and May. Patrick Roy- Canadiens What can I say? As a B's fan, I hated the guy. But, you had to respect the way he came into the league and promptly won a Stanley Cup, then made Boston fans' lives miserable. Things turned a bit for us in '88 and '90, but he was sensational in the old Adams and always seemed to save some of his greatest performances for those many games against the B's. Pelle Lindbergh- Flyers He was one goalie I coveted for the B's as a youngster. To this day, I wonder what might have been had he not killed himself in that drunken car wreck. I tend to think that those Flyers teams of the early-to-mid 80's would have won at least 1 Stanley Cup with Lindbergh in the nets. He was just so quick and poised all the time- he was one goalie who made me feel like Dominik Hasek did in the 1990s- intimidated. Pete Peeters- Bruins He had that one magical Vezina campaign for Boston in 1982-83, but it was a magical time. He was playing at a level that no other goalie seemed to be able to approach. Posting a 2.36 GAA and 8 shutouts at a time when the average was over 3.00 and guys were barely getting 3 shutouts in a single year was as dominating a season you found at any time until Hasek arrived in Buffalo a decade later. Unfortunately, Peeters was no match for the crafty Billy Smith in the 1983 playoffs and he never got back to that level of play with Boston again. Who are your goalies of the 80's?
